Saturday 17th December – usual parkrun starting at 9:00AM but with Christmas themed fancy dress encouraged and prizes for the the best costumes (runners and volunteers eligible). Santa Claus has agreed to provide the lead sleigh bike again this year I think although he does seem to have an issue with the alignment of the stars this year. Coffee or mulled wine and mince pies afterwards at the Café in the park, usual menu also available.
Christmas Eve - usual parkrun starting at 9:00AM. Full set of volunteers needed, please volunteer if you can.
Christmas Day - extra parkrun starting at 9:30AM. Please note that there can be no doubling up of parkruns on Christmas Day even if, because of possible staggered event start times, you are able to get from one event to another in time to start at the second event.
New Years Eve – usual Saturday parkrun starting at 9:00AM. Full set of volunteers needed, please volunteer if you can.
New Years Day – no parkrun at Newcastle but there may be extra parkruns arranged at other venues in the North East or there is the New Years Day resolution run on the Town moor – 10km, two X-country laps of the Town moor. Just the job to clear a hangover!
